Black Panther movie draws huge crowds

Black Panther is the fourth Marvel movie to be released with a leading black superhero. The first three being the Blade trilogy in 1998, 2002 and 2004. Black Panther is a movie with characters who show bravery, courage and honor. The movie is focuses on the king of Wakanda, a technologically advanced African nation, who doubles as a superhero.

The movie is great because it gives an interesting twist to the superhero concept. Black Panther is a king who is seen as a hero by the people of Wakanda for defeating a would-be dictator and preserving the vibranium reserves within Wakanda.

The movie got a 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The plot revolves around a king, Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman, who returns home to Wakanda to reclaim the throne.

Once Black Panther has become king, he is immediately challenged for the throne by Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan. Killmonger kills Black Panther and becomes the new king. The Gorilla Tribe, Nakia, played by Lupita Nyong´o, and Okoye, played by Danai Gurira, find a nearly dead Black Panther and help him retake the throne.

An event that played a key role in the movie was when Killmonger defeated Black Panther when he challenged him for the throne. This battle showcased that no matter your position of power, there is still someone who will try to take your position. Your position of power does not make you invulnerable.

All in all, Black Panther is spectacular movie. I believe that this movie is an amazing more for people of every age because it has humor that would make anyone laugh. The movie also has special effects that would amaze everyone.

I like this movie because it has been different than the previous movies Marvel has released. It is different because it does not merely focus on good guy versus bad guy. The movie´s plot is, instead, the bad guy beats king and takes throne, only for king to come back and retake the throne.
